It was supposed to be a night of celebration during the gala debut of the $145 million Green Music Center at Sonoma State Univerisity. But what was supposed to be a night punctuated by a fireworks show, for many in Rohnert Park, became a night of confusion.
According to this story in the Press Democrat, over 150 people called police to report gunfire. Many in the community were unaware that the fireworks show was taking place and for a period of 20 minutes, they flooded the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety with concerned calls.
Rohnert Park-Cotati Patch reported about the opening of the Donald and Maureen Green Music Center Saturday.
The debut took place within the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Hall inside the Green Center. The hall boasts 1,400 concert seats and is designed to showcare music and singing as well as other performance arts.
Now we put the question up to the readers of Rohnert Park-Cotati Patch. Did you hear or see the fireworks? In your opinion, were they too loud?
If you were at the gala, what was your impression of the evening?
